Bridge of Clay by Marcus Zusak

After their mother dies and their father walks out on them, five brothers care for each other in a Sydney suburb. Their lives are chaotic, loud, and full of shenanigans, but beneath the chaos, each of the five boys must come to terms with the loss of their parents. Everything changes one hot summer when an odd request drives a wedge between the brothers.

This sprawling story can be hard at times to keep track of, but Zusak’s use of language is poetic, stunning, and irresistible. As he did with his prior book, The Book Thief, Zusak draws the reader into a complex story with flawed, lovable characters that come together in a heart-wrenching crescendo of grief and the love that causes it.

Echo in the Canyon (PG-13) | Netflix

A look at the roots of the historic music scene in L.A.’s Laurel Canyon featuring the music of iconic groups such as The Byrds, The Beach Boys, Buffalo Springfield, and The Mamas and the Papas.

I grew up listening to a lot of music from the 60s and 70s but I was not familiar with most of the groups that are spotlighted in this documentary. I love learning about the history of music and this is a great look into the origins of the music coming out of Laurel Canyon at the time.
